Over the last six years, the church has donated about $125,000 in BBQ funds to area organizations, including Barium Springs, Angels and Sparrows Soup Kitchen in Huntersville and Loaves and Fishes food pantry in Davidson.
Once again, we are proud to be support Barium Springs Home for Children with 100% of the proceeds from this event. In past years, funds from the BBQ, Bake Sale, and Silent Auction have gone toward replacing appliances and furniture at Barium Springs. This year, our funds will go toward replacing the roofs on four residential buildings at the Barium Springs complex. Your participation will allow Barium Springs to resolve these facility issues so that they can focus on providing their high level of care for children who need it most. Join us on September 26th and let's do something extraordinary.
We need you! We really do, because the BBQ is only successful when people take part planning, preparing, and serving. Bethel is a mission minded church, focused on serving each other and serving all of God’s people and the BBQ is a great way for you to live out the mission by volunteering your time. Not only will you be the hands and feet of the BBQ, but you’ll be the hands and feet of Christ to the children of Barium Springs. Also, if you’re a new or old member you’ll make lasting friendships working alongside your brothers and sisters at Bethel! Info on how you can take part is below:
